College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: I have not lived off campus so I don't know much.

5 College Junior

Academics: I have nothing bad to say.

5 College Junior

Academics: I have nothing bad to say!

College Junior

Nightlife: I don't go out to clubs or bars so I would not know a lot.

5 College Junior

Health & Safety: If something happens someone is there to talk to you and help you out.

4 College Junior

Campus Strictness: They do what is right.

4 College Junior

Diversity: We have a lot of international students and they all have clubs and participate in everything!

4 College Junior

Campus Housing: I am a transfer and this is like a five star hotel compared to where I began.

4 College Junior

Majors: As long as you maintain good grades and do well on the Nation wide test you will do fine getting in.

4 College Junior

Majors: I won't have an internship so I don't know anything about that but for a teacher getting a job that job placement rate is 99-100%!

3 College Junior

Greek Life: The Greek life do things for the community and that is the extent. They don't have different housing so it is not huge on campus.

4 College Junior

Athletics: Even though I don't play any sports I hear they are great. The facility we have is beautiful and great for athletes and non-athletes.

4 College Junior

Scholarships: It went great and everyone was helpful.

-Always keep in touch

3 College Junior

Nightlife: From my limited experience there are enough bars and clubs in town to cater to whichever "scene" a person might wish to be on.

4 College Junior

Campus Housing: Campus housing is adequately sized and generally fairly conveniently located.

4 College Junior

Campus Strictness: Luther is quite distinctly a community where the students and faculty cooperate in mutual respect. Professors are understanding and willing to discuss options with students, and they in turn are generally motivated to attend classes on time and duly prepared.

College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: I haven't had much experience with off-campus housing. My reviews above are based on what I've heard from others.

4 College Junior

Scholarships: My college's Financial Aid Office is one of the most efficiently run operations I've seen. Competent, helpful, and flexible, the people there will get you the required information and make sure you understand what to do with it.

4 College Junior

Diversity: My college makes an effort to be open and welcoming to everybody. Students who oppose this are normally met with general disapproval.

4 College Junior

Facilities: Outside of the architectural poke-in-the-eye that is Main, the campus is well made and bursting with facilities for various student activities.

3 College Junior

Campus Dining: The Cafeteria could do with some policy reworkings and possibly some different ingredient suppliers. The other eating options on campus are, however, excellent. Sadly the removal of the meal-transfer option severely hampered my ability to enjoy these other options.

4 College Junior

Academics: The academic opportunities at my college are excellent. Talented professors, thoughtfully selected curriculum, and efficient registration processes leave students free to focus on learning without any distractions or undue day-to-day hurdles.

4 College Junior

Academics: The Poli-Sci major isn't too demanding of credit-hours, leaving me free to pursue minors and majors wherever else I like.

4 College Junior

Majors: The Poli-Sci program is a great department to study in. The professors are knowledgeable and helpful and the courses are engaging and enlightening.

4 College Junior

Majors: Getting into a major program isn't at all difficult, and the process of creating an individualized interdisciplinary major is almost as convenient.

The Luther bubble does a wonderful job of creating an experience that is not duplicated anywhere else, and many students hold that near to their hearts. The campus's small size allows for plenty of bonding and gives students support and a sense of community and common purpose. The College’s “liberal” bent has less to do with politics and more to do with personal choice. The College allows students to be creative and experiment on their own terms without punishing them for being different sexually, personally, or in terms of viewpoint. In the same way, professors at Luther are not about pushing their own ideas onto other students; they would rather present multiple viewpoints to you and let you make your own decision based on what you’ve learned. The community is also present outside of academics, and everyone is in the same boat at Luther. Despite the existence of a small Greek system, there is no real hierarchy at Luther over who rules the roost. If you’re looking for an Animal House-type experience or plan on living and dying based on the basketball team, you’ll be out of luck at Luther.

Many students love Luther for the simple fact that the bubble allows students to experience all kinds of fun. Academics aside, many students come here for the opportunity to perform in music, play sports, make a difference in student government, or contribute to the campus’s vibrant performing arts society. The workload at Luther and variety of majors allow students to get a great education and forget about it on the weekends, but that doesn’t mean every night has to be a party. Most professors place an emphasis on writing competence at Luther, which means you can expect more term papers than worksheets, especially if you’re in a writing-intensive major. Luther teaches students that although many of the best things can be found on campus, you should still venture into the unknown just to be sure. College is not about ivory towers, old brick buildings, and a false sense of importance; it’s about finding and creating yourself. For many students, there’s no better place to complete that project than Luther.
